A Reflection Practice to Start Taking Control of Your Life

A Reflection Practice to Start Taking Control of Your Life

Each day in our lives is composed of thousands and thousands of tiny habits. We go through these habits automatically, without even thinking about most of them. And for the most part, this is an advantageous behavior. We don’t have enough brainpower to think about every single thing we do in our day. Habits free up mental energy for the tasks that do require intense thought, putting everything else on autopilot.

However, the greatest power of habits is also their greatest danger.

The problem with a resolution is the same as any form of visualization practice– without backing it up with action a resolution amounts to little more than wishful thinking. How can you stop your resolution from fading away and finally make real change happen in your life?

What does it take to give truly thoughtful gifts?

Though we love to do it, gift giving can be incredibly stressful. Even with a plan, we always find a way to cast doubts on our choices. When the slippery slope of questions start the gift we’re so sure of gets put back on the shelf. We resign ourselves to spending hours wondering around stores second guessing every new choice, until frustrated and tired we settle on a gift card. We reason with ourselves that while this is not one of the most thoughtful gifts, at least they’ll get something they really want.

feeling overwhelmed

The Question Tim Ferriss Asks When He’s Feeling Overwhelmed

What do you do when you’re feeling overwhelmed?

Feeling overwhelmed is a common problem that can strike at any moment. As demands roll in from all directions this productivity killing monster often rears it’s ugly head. At first it’s not so bad. We feel busy, challenged, maybe even a little excited that we have so much to do. There’s a catch though.

Direct and Indirect Goals
